A momentous yet terse note from Will Skinner provides a magnificent start for 2011:

Happy new Year! I wanted to write to share the good news. Christina and I got engaged yesterday in NYC. I’ve attached a few photos from our day.


Will and Christina

Here are a pair of photos from NYC of Will and Christina on their big day. Intense Excitement in NYC – and Alexandria as well. Congratulations to our newest clan couple.


A Particularly Happy New Year

What Snow?


We look forward to meeting Christina soon – perhaps the annual Skinner Reunion May 2011??? That would be great if this busy couple could manage it! Best of luck to Will and Christina!

Family Spotlight

“Dr. Paul Tatum Practices the Heart & Soul of Family Medicine”. Thus begins this winter’s edition of the U. of Missouri Family and Community Medicine newsletter. In it, Trey (aka Paul, husband as you well know, of Helene Fehlig Tatum) is the featured physician, receiving accolades from his patients and colleagues. A typical comment: “Paul’s infectious enthusiasm, intense curiosity, and serious playfulness make him a wonderful physician and friend. And his sensitive, compassionate, and contemplative nature makes him well suited for hospice and palliative care.”

Trey’s accomplishments since returning to the University of Missouri in 2008 are numerous. He has received a Geriatric Career Award providing him a grant for academic work in “Improving Transitions of Care with Interdisciplinary Teams.” In 2010 he also had several publications, including co-authoring chapters on Hospice and Spirituality and End-of-Life Care in a book “Care of the Dying Patient.” He is also a contributor to the blog Geripal.

Keep up the great work Trey – we are proud of what you do, and since your relocation to Columbia, we now have the added bonus of seeing the Tatum Tribe more frequently at Moone Athy.

  1. Fabulous article Trey, when you hear all the negative news about our profession it was wonderful to read not only of your accomplishments, but of your compassionate care to the patients you serve, both gain so much from this most human of interactions. Keep up the good work and much love to the Tatums, UB
